On holidays, the pleasure cruisers and regular boats are highly popular at Lake Suwa. With the wide-open sky overhead and the grand site of the mountains, touring Lake Suwa will provide a freeing experience. It is quite popular among children as well. Wakasagi smelt fishing is also available during the autumn and winter months.
*Pleasure cruisers may be inoperable due to the freezing of Lake Suwa during wintertime or bad weather.
This is a spacious footbath that up to 40 people can sit at. You can relax here while viewing Lake Suwa or the North and South Alps. Very close by is the "Natural Bath Walkway" that can provide reflexology massages for your feet.
Thanks to the abundant hotspring water, Suwa is one of the few cities where one can enjoy a nice footbath even at the platform of the train station.
The footbath at the Kami-Suwa Station platform can be used for free by presenting your train ticket or entrance ticket.
